playing zoom.
no previous read.
villain very deep stack.

Play:

OPened and elected to play passively on a wet board without much hit. Got checked behind, hit my straight on the river, but villain shoves in with 300 BB.

I could only place him with a nuts (JQ) or nothing.

Do I have enough strenght to call him down and gamble my deep stack?

No, there is a very small chance he only has the board.

Other than that he has a J. There are quite a few QJ hands he could have. Most of the time you are splitting, and I think he's more like to have QJ than just the board.

No way I would gamble 300BB in a spot like this. Sure, good chance he is bullying you but I would snapfold this.
You have very little money invested in this hand so far so I would simple let it go.

Hi,

Super easy fold. At best you are chopping, this is never a bluff (he could raise to $2 to bluff you and not put all $30 at risk). There's 1.25 in the pot so we are going to risk $30 to win .62c? Noooooooooo!

PS - if he is bluffing it's absolutely horrific... you will have a jack almost always and QJ is in your range, so the risk/reward on a bluff by him is insanely bad. If he thought you were just stabbing and like he should resteal (no reason to think this), $2-$3 would be plenty to do the trick, same exact results for a much better bluff risk.
